Control, the hive

is humming.

I repeat,

the hive is humming.

Control, we have

confirmed cloud formation.

I repeat,

the cotton is in the gin.

Roger that. We have minimal winds

and a very high ceiling. Looking good.

- And Gary,

- Yeah.

can you quit with the metaphors?

You're driving us crazy.

Roger that.

Mr. Price, would you describe

your writings based on science...

or apocalyptic sensation?

I do think the whole science

community is missing the big picture.


Well, maybe a little.

Then again, that's what sells

these days, doesn't it?

Please remind me to write a book

that more women would be interested in...

something about relationships,

or dogs, or both.

Can we just finish up?

I'm starved.

And I'd like to get my nails done

before the TV interview tonight.

I'm the one being interviewed,

not you.

What time is it?

No reason.


I have got a date.

- But we just got here.

- Plenty of time.

Remember the Cafe Barista, you should

get us a couple of really nice cappuccinos?

- Charlie!

- I'm just kidding.

She's an old colleague of mine.


I find it hard to believe.

Me too!

Mr. Price.

I've read all your novels.

I'm sorry to hear that.

Well, me too.

I thought about this a lot, and in

all your sensationalistic writings...

I've come to find that you're

just as big a hypocrite, as the...

scientific and government


that you seek

so often to condemn.

Really? How so?

Do you think the solutions offered

by any of the characters...

to any of the disasters in your book...

are any better than what's being tried

right now and the actually work?

I don't know,

I'm not a scientist...

I'm a writer who's blessed with

the luxury of dreaming of disasters.

I will leave solutions

for lab rats.

Yeah, but I read, that you were once

a lab rat yourself...

that you left

the scientific community. Right?

Who do I make this out to?

Hey, guys,

I think it's raining.

- Yes!

- Wooh...

It is raining.

We did it, Jo.

You should see this.

You don't see that everyday.

Guys, we have a situation...

in the town of Harrisford.

That's not good.

What's taking you so long?

Would you just relax?

I thought I told you to go

to the rest-stop 10 miles ago.

I didn't have to go then.

But you don't understand

how women work...

once we know we can't go

that's exactly when we have to go.

Yeah, that makes no sense.

Can we drop it?

I'm done.

Yeah, and so is the book signing

if we don't hurry, okay?

Hurry? You've been

driving like my grandma.

I'm hypermiling, okay?

Going 55 miles an hour gets me

an extra 50 miles per tank of gas.

I don't care what it does.

Just don't blame me that we might miss

the damn book signing, okay?


Our assignment was

"A Day in the Life of Charlie Price".

A day, not 10 minutes,

not an hour. A day.

Did you see that?

Did you see those clouds?

Those aren't normal.

I'm gonna get my camera.

What're you talking about?

You didn't see it?

I tell you what I see. I see my future

when I fail this class,

and it isn't good.

It's gone.

So, let's go.

What we need to focus on

is why the first quarter...

didn't perform as well

as the third quarter...

Excuse me one moment,

ladies and gentlemen.

What is it?

Our weather sat Delta,

picked up a blip on the radar...

and your project

Rain Dance test..

Do you mind telling me

what a "blip" is?

Yeah, uh...

It's a storm. That's what Rain Dance

is supposed to do.

Rain Dance is close

to 14 miles away from us.

Put Damon on the phone.

Sorry about that,

ladies and gentlemen.
